Telawi Street Tele Caffe

A strange hybrid of a cellphone store & a cheesecake cafe in Bangsar.

Blueberry cheesecake, the cafe's only remaining option for us on a not-too-recent weeknight. Densely moist & flavorsome enough to recommend.

Coffee was available, but we wanted to steer clear of caffeine at this late hour. (Or maybe the real reason was that we were more interested in acquiring alcohol instead at a neighboring pub).

Looking at all the phones reminded us of the old riddle. Q: What's the difference between E.T. & a married man? A: E.T. phoned home.

Telawi Street Tele Caffe,
Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur.

  6. Baby sumo: hmmm, good point! I think so, though I didn't check. And didn't notice if the folks who served us the cheesecake were handling the phones as well :D

  7. Interesting combo. Does eating cheesecake make you more likely to buy a phone, or buying a phone make you more likely to want cheesecake?...

  8. Ms tindall: heheh, I figure they should actually sell beer. Getting drunk might make customers more susceptible to the idea of buying a new phone :D

  11. This shop is often empty when I was past. Looks like they have to buck up to stay in the business...

  12. bangsar-babe: yikes, yeah, the f&b scene is really challenging at telawi. this place has a quirky concept, but it needs something stronger to keep customers coming...
